* When ''SpongeBobSquarePants'' is made hall monitor, he gives an acceptance speech so long (he even quotes a long speech from another hall monitor) that class is over by the time he's finished.

* TheBoondocks has one delivered by Martin Luther King Jr., after he's revealed to have survived his assassination and was just in a coma the whole time. When he tries to give a speech later in the episode, he's horrified at his stereotypical black trailer trash/ghetto audience and how much of an embarrassment they're being, before launching into a long [[NWordPrivileges n-word]]-laden TakeThat rant against them, eventually wandering off into other topics like BET and SoulPlane.

** [[TropesAreNotBad Not a case of bad writing though]], Dostoyevsky was able to represent many viewpoints (even if they where the opposite of his own) in a respectable and intelligent manner.

Link rot.
* It's based on a true story, but we don't know how much is real: during the Clay Shaw trial in ''Film/{{JFK}}'', Jim Garrison talks [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KwoakFvvLIo for 8 minutes]] in final summation (that brought Kevin Costner [[ThrowItIn to real tears]]).

** Speaking of Kevin Costner, he gives a rather epic off-the-cuff [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBfdl6hNZ9k speech]] in BullDurham when asked, "well, what do you believe then?", though unlike most such examples it's very ribald. It's also HilariousInHindsight, because on the things he says in the speech is "I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone."

* In ''Film/DonJuanDemarco'', the title character (played by JohnnyDepp) has a couple speeches explaining what it takes to be the World's Greatest Lover (it's very much to Depp's acting credit that he manages to deliver these convincingly.) His analyst Dr. Mickler (MarlonBrando) does a more tongue-in-cheek one, complete with playful fake accent, about being the World's Greatest Psychiatrist.

* The ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' series has a lot of these, usually by the villains. ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'' has ''three'' in ''one'' CutScene (admittedly, it was broken up by a boss fight, at least), one of which was an AuthorFilibuster also. ** Quietly self-parodied by ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid: Portable Ops'', where the lead villain's [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway crazy MGS superpower]] is his ability to talk endlessly.

** This is particularly notable because Oswalt improvised the entire thing, making it a good example of what a realistic filibuster sounds like.
